This is your last chance to get tickets to this year’s festival at tier 1 prices. Right now you can save 20% on full price tickets, but by 1st March they’ll have gone!
Daphne’s Flight and Blazin’ Fiddles added to Bill.
In addition to Kate Rusby, the first lady of English folk, and Jon Boden, former frontman of Bellowhead, we have the legendary harmony supergroup Daphne’s Flight (first formed at the Cambridge Folk Festival in 1995) reuniting to appear at Southwell on the Saturday.
And also just confirmed, another celebrated group, the intoxicating Blazin’ Fiddles from Scotland. No other band has quite captured Scottish fiddle music’s variety, energy and sensitivity like Blazin’ Fiddles have – playing Thursday.
Also recently booked are award-winning Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin, a return for Ranagri, last here in 2015, all-female Wookalily, swing-folksters The BeauBowBelles, a rare chance to see Chris Sherburn & Denny Bartley, and leading the way on the Frontier stage, Rob Heron & the Tea Pad Orchestra, Sheelanigig and Dana Immanuel & the Stolen Band.
All this adds to the impressive international line-up already announced including BOC from Mallorca, Canadian bands Le Vent Du Nord and The East Pointers, Americans Chris Smither and The Ooks of Hazzard, and the last European tour of Australia’s Cloudstreet, as well as plenty of home grown talent, such as The Changing Room (Sam Kelly and Tanya Brittain), acclaimed duo Megson, traditional star Megan Henwood, performance poets Les Barker and Jason Maverick, newly-formed Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage, singer-songwriter Jack Harris, and Tyneside’s She Shanties.
